JESUS SAID, NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME -Message 1
JOHN 14:6

Introduction:

This is the first of two messages about Jesus’ claim to be the only way to God the Father.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Is that the truth? The Bible says it is. There have been hundreds of claims about the way of salvation and to Heaven by hundreds of different religions. The Scriptures have the truth about this and about Jesus Christ. He is the “only begotten Son of God.” What does the Bible say?
I. JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE FROM THE FATHER
John 3:13, “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.”
A. What is His Name? Proverbs 30:4, “Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?”
B. His Name is Jesus, Matthew 1:21, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
C. He is the One who has made known the Father, John 1:18, “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”
1. It is God’s will that all men honor the Son, John 5:23, “That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.”
2. It is God’s will that we believe on Him that God has sent, John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
3. It is God’s will that Jesus relieve you of your burden of sin, Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
II. JESUS IS THE ONE WHO SUFFERED AND DIED FOR OUR SINS,
1 Peter 3:18, “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”
A. He bore our grief, Isaiah 53:4, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
B. He was wounded for our transgressions, Isaiah 53:5, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
1. The One who became Sin for us, 2 Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
2. The One who took away our sin, John 1:29, “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”
III. THE ONE WHO LOVES US
Revelation 1:5, “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”
A. His love is a Great Love, Ephesians 2:4-5, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)”
B. He loves us with an everlasting love, Jeremiah 31:3, “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
C. God demonstrated His love for us, 1 John 4:10, “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” [act of being made favorable]
1. He love us first, 1 John 4:19, “We love him, because he first loved us.”
2. In love He calls us His “sons,” 1 John 3:1, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”
3. He gave us power to become His sons, John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
CONCLUSION:
The conclusion to this matter is that Jesus Christ is the Way of Salvation and to Heaven. To deny that is to declare that you do not know God the Father, 1 John 2:23, “Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” And that your name is not written in Heaven, Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
